Monday, 24 August Kaleb Daark the doomed one, he is back. Malal has alway been a fascinating God too since he was mentionned in warhammer RPG and a few publications but got erased for some sordid IP reasons. The appeal of both is still very strong and from time to time, small details can ignite a barrel of renegade god fuel. For me, it started all long ago with this tiny bit : Rings a bell? Yeah, me too

Malal[ edit ] What Malal might look like The character Malal was created in The Citadel Journal for second edition Warhammer Fantasy by John Wagner and Alan Grant as the patron of the Warriors of Chaos character Kaleb Daark, who allied with the forces of good to fight Chaos while pursuing his own goals by confronting Khornates and Skaven using his soul-drinking magic axe. He was sent by Malal to assassinate one of the Chaos God of Law Arianka to prove himself worthy, a story which continued in three chapters.
In Kaleb and his mount were given stats in Journal and his miniature was advertised, and it along with the fourth chapter were never released for unknown reasons "creative differences" is all that was ever revealed. The first edition of Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay states he is a rogue Chaos God who wants to destroy the Four, a Champion of Malal is killed by the protagonist in a short story found in the Ignorant Armies short story novels, and the Chaos Marauders cardgame had a card which depicted Beastmen preparing to fight other Chaos beings.
All in all, Malal was designed as an anti hero villain side to Chaos who is beneficial to the side of Order but is too Chaotic Evil for any being to trust, and actively drains both friend and enemy of energy to feed himself. Serving him is advancing oblivion, fighting him is to be annihilated. Any infighting on the part of Chaos resulted in Malal growing in power, essentially introducing the concept of total war to the Warp entities.
Only by cooperating and shifting their attention to the mortal realm could the other Chaos Gods escape his influence, where they found his minions waiting for them. During the year Wagner and Grant experienced a falling out over several comics they were producing at the time including Judge Dredd and work for DC Comics as well as several works for smaller publishers.
This was followed by a sudden scramble for rights earned by them during their time creating for different companies and resulted in them suing Games Workshop for total ownership of Kaleb and Malal.
If Games Workshop ever used Malal again, they would either have to pay a royalty fee or enter into a lawsuit over the ownership of the character, which they surprisingly never did. Malal was only used once more, in the The Dying of the Light campaign where a Chaos sorcerer of Tzeentch named Heinrich Bors switches to Malal in order to have control over his own fate again. Although technically owning Malal and Kaleb, neither author has done anything with the characters, as Wagner continues to mostly write Judge Dredd while Grant now works on zombie-related stories.
He was never canon to 40K until the Sons of Malice came around see below. That said, he still has fan popularity along with the equally oldass Chaos Gods of Law , and he appeared in Hogshead Publishing material at least as late as the s. Zuvassin and Necoho together represent the same thing that Malal did, the concept of Chaos destroying itself and Khorne, Tzeentch, Slaanesh, and Nurgle plus the Chaos Gods of Order each falling prey to the primordial nothingness they emerged from in the same way the mortals do into them.
Kaleb Daark in all his "glory. Zuvassin[ edit ] Zuvassin is a rogue Chaos God who undoes the plans of any being, Chaos or not, including Tzeentch. Any time you could make a list of possible outcomes for any given thing then draw in Zuvassin, the "INCONCEIVABLE" result will occur; a coin will fall through a portal into another dimension and land on all surfaces at once, a six-sided dice will crack in half while being rolled and reveal a 7 and 8 inside results, both factions in a battle will actually somehow end the day with more soldiers than they began with.
A Chaos Warrior named Zuvass is a major character, claiming to be the worshipper of a minor god. Fittingly all of his schemes ultimately seem to amount to screwing over everybody else. He fights against the concept of belief and faith and as a result is the enemy of all spiritual creatures and faithful worshipers.
He only ever actually appears as a simple mortal being and counts everyone and nobody to be his followers. Necoho will one day bring about the end of the Chaos Gods when nothing left will worship them and they will cease to be. Legacy of Malal[ edit ] Both players and Eavy Metal painters alike continued to use Malal even if he had gone without a mention, and was still considered to be canon.
The early days of the Warhammer forums had the discovery of Malal as something of a rite of passage for Chaos players as well. Malal paintjobs continued to show up in many Golden Demon competitions and Eavy Metal showcases alike.
Thus the idea of the "Chaos outsider" became just a whiny petulant part of Chaos that had managed to wreak great destruction in the mortal world while attempting, and failing, to give a black eye to his masters. They then proceed to cannibalize the Sister and her group, and were exiled from the Imperium for their heresy, even as they continued fighting against the other forces of Chaos. But once again, Malice was never mentioned again, although his color scheme was repeated in subsequent works.
Technically they were never retconned, and "non-canon by exclusion" is a weak accusation as that would mean every character and every event must be mentioned every edition for them to remain canon.
Some people have taken on the perspective that the "Chaos God of Go Fuck Yourself" is a continually shifting being, more in flux than Tzeentch and that each incarnation is comparable to Doctor Who incarnations.
It is also dubious because of the proven disconnect between Black Library and the actual army books, evidenced by massive contradictions during the event and the casual attitude of the writers, means that anything in said books must be taken with a huge grain of salt.
Regardless, during the event when every character that Games Workshop remembered existed played a part, no fifth Chaos God other than Horned Rat did anything which means he and his other selves may truly be non-canon. So it may be possible that Archaon is the latest incarnation of the Malal concept, albeit as a German rapeviking this time rather than a giant boar As a result Archaon is facing an uphill battle of trying to eliminate their armies and all civilians, because this is Lord Edgemaster after all then trap them and figure out a way to remove them without destroying the Realm itself all while battling against the rest of Chaos which periodically tries to backstab him despite them being his only supporters.
If he achieves his goal, he will rule over all of reality including whatever the fuck the Warp can fairly be called as the sole being of any concept of power. He eventually released his designs to the public seen below in the Gallery section , then created new versions which he assigned to an unknown being called "Malign" in order to have them produced by third-party companies for sale.
According to Ackland, his version of Malal was going to be very similar to Khorne in that the two were extremely violent and focused mainly on sending warriors into combat rather than any politicking. So players who for years have wanted their very own Malal army now can have exactly that. Malal and the Tyranids [ edit ] When Rogue Trader was being devised and the creatures that would later form the Tyranid Hive Fleets with it, Malal was originally going to have as had been conceived for WHFB armies of insectoid and beast-like chimeras that would consume everything in their path, including themselves.
After the planned narrative for the other four Chaos Gods to conspire to remove Malal from the warp in M36, all of them fearful that Malal was too powerful in the Great Game, Malal was to in fact be "killed" by being booted from the warp and into the material realm. When Malal appeared in the material realm he moved into the void between galaxies, hidden from view to everyone, from the populations of the infinite galaxies of the universe that now surrounded him to the other Chaos gods themselves who were busy enjoying their assumed victory and continuing the great game.
From this dark and empty space Malal devised a plan; he would create a new form of life, one that was capable of consuming all life in the material realm whilst feeding his own power. In turn the Hive Fleets were born and Malal braved a sly smile. Malal sent the fleets across the universe, entering galaxies and consuming all life and matter within; each galaxy consumed giving even more strength to the lost god hidden in the void.
If the Hive fleets succeed Malal will be boosted in his objective of re-ascending to the Immaterium as the most powerful god of the warp. Whether the renegade god will succeed is left open, but as the Hive Fleets continue to spread amongst the galaxies and worlds that make up the 40K universe, things do not look good for anyone, including the other Chaos Gods.
Sadly as Malal has gone from lore due to legal issues, so have the plans for his Tyranid organisms. They remain without a clear origin story. The last hint GW gave for Malal still being behind the tyranids was in 5th Ed when the tyranids were described as being "guided by a hidden intelligence far more powerful than even the norn-queens".
Since then nothing, if anything, has really been said on the matter. Praise the true atheist god! Followers of Malal are kind of like Chaos Agnostics. They doubt that anything exists, including the Emperor , Chaos itself, and you. Especially you. This also made him the God of paradoxes, Radical Inquisitors and the like trying to turn Chaos against itself, and the outcast god since he was trying to buttfuck every other Chaos God and their followers. The thing about Malal was that even though he was one of the biggest personifications of Chaos there could be, he constantly tried to destroy Chaos and if he were ever successful in ending Chaos he could be destroyed as well.
Not that this pants-on head crazy a-hole cared, as suicidal tendencies and teamkilling just became part of his portfolio instead. Since Malal was supposed to be the antitheses of Chaos he had only a few champions, all of whom were supposed to be STUPIDLY powerful and would go around bitch-slapping other Chaos champions with their anti-daemon daemon-axes of doom while wearing warp-resistant warp armor. The servants of Malal fight in utter silence, but that makes them way more badass than the rest of chaos.
So yeah. They work with the forces of Order, but are fairly likely to engage in teamkilling to the degree that Orks are shocked by their sudden but inevitable betrayals. Because of this followers of Malal have to already be balls to the wall nuts and have superhuman will.
His sacred number was His signature weapon was the Dreadaxe which was a daemon weapon made out of a Daemon that hates Daemons , and it looked like a pterodactyl head on a stick.
You can still find examples of this weapon in the CSM 3. Malal has a fortress in the Chaos Wastes in Warhammer Fantasy where he captures and trolls Greater Daemons by trapping them for all eternity unable to do whatever it is that they embody. He also put a Great Unclean One in a vat of disinfectant; blinded and binded a Lord of Change and put him in a stasis-field; and locked a Bloodthirster in an indestructible zen garden. In Age of Sigmar, Malal actually controls the space between the Realms and decides when the Realmgates will function and when they will not, plucking those he desires from the space between spaces and doing with them as he wills.
Since Chaos no longer fights itself he has weakened to a degree, and must now rely on his plan to turn Archaon to his will and take the massive powers the Four invested in him which will mark the beginning of the end of Chaos. And what is the number of one of the missing legions? Additionally, Horus during the end of the Great Crusade fucking straight says the name of one of his lost brothers is Malal!!!
So Tzeentch gathered the other gods and formulated a plan to deal with Malal once and for all. It required about a century of constant beating, but eventually Malal died. Upon his death the other Four Chaos gods celebrated for one thousand years now that the cheese lord was out of the way.
That includes using the Sons of Malice Grey Knights? In fact, the truth is much more terrifying. Malal in fact managed to travel back through time to the present, where he is now trying to manifest.
This is the source of the Zalgo legends across the internet. Ironically or appropriately depending on how you look at it one of the best ways to represent 40k Malal dedicated Chaos Marines would be to use the Grey Knights codex.
Think about it; elite marine units with sick powers and a plethora of daemon killing hardware, small army sizes, and more. Take an Unbound Dreadknight spam list and use Chaos bitz for a nasty Chaos smashing elite warband of Malal followers and lolstomp your opponents into the ground.
Well, now you no longer have a fucking excuse. Play-testing would be very much appreciated. Alternatively, modification to existing Daemon models using their original stats is fine too a popular idea for example is a gleeful white and black Daemon Prince tearing itself in half along the color separation.
Malal Homebrew[ edit ] Due to the fact that there is little concrete information about Malal content, especially in 40k where he is essentially non-existent, there are a number of ways to interpret the lore into a whole. Information is subject to change of course: Forces of Malal Daemons of the Ruinstorm[ edit ] Book Eight — Malevolence of the Horus heresy books added a new set of rules for daemon armies with a much, much wider set of options to build from, these include 6 army wide themes called Aetheric dominions to represent the four main gods and chaos undivided, along with one called "mirror of hate" which which grants you hatred for daemons and psykers, 1 VP for each unit of the aforementioned you kill and costs you a victory point for each unit you lose, you also win automatically if you end with 0VP.
Dirges of Malal[ edit ] Take the rot, to make it flesh. Take the skull, the soul to rest. Take their mind and give them peace. Take their will. Sensations cease.
KALEB DAARK PDF
Jump to: navigation , search This page is needs images. Help plz. He is the only known Champion of the Renegade God, Malal , and when that god fell into litigation dispute, he was excised from Warhammer canon, leaving only his depictions in a handful of printed comics. In personality he is brusque, forceful and impatient; though loyal to Malal, he has no fear of arguing with his god if he does not understand his current mission, nor of demanding payment in Chaos-tainted blood. His features are distinctively bisected; the left side of his face having dark short hair, an elf-like ear, and a deep, skull-like eye socket lit from within by a tiny spark, while the right side of his face is perfectly human - almost angelic in its handsomeness, with long blonde hair. This issue also saw the first advertisements for the miniature figure set including a mounted and standing Kaleb Daark. Part 4 "God Amok!
Mojin Armour adds 44 points 2 x a modifier of This model is merely a variation on a theme but the exercise was enjoyable? Just came across this. For me, it started all long ago with this tiny bit:. I seem to recall it got used as a generic demon somewhere. So if I was playing against Tzeetnch, I used all the marks and magic for Nurgle in the army, giving any marked champions the powers of the Mark of Nurgle, treating any marked units as Pestigors, and so on.
Contents [ show ] The Renegade God There is a name whispered quietly and with fear even by the most depraved, the most evil, and the least sane of the worshippers of Chaos. That name is Malice, the Renegade God of Chaos. In eons past Malice was cast out from the bosom of Chaos by the other Gods, or else abandoned them of his own volition, no one is sure which. All Chaos Gods pursue purposes that are wholly their own, yet only Malice occupies a position so antithetical to the success of his own unfathomable creed. To be a follower of Malice is to be a Chaos warrior bent upon shedding the blood of other Chaos creatures.
